Hi KLY
I have read that some people who are on wellbutrin get up a night specifically to eat. Is this what you are referring to?

i'm talking about where over 50% of the daily food intake is eaten at night. the person feels EXTREMELY guilty about the food consumed and it usualy "comfort" foods. not eaten all at once of course. but one "snack" is sneaked from the kitchen, the person eats it, and is not comforted, goes back for more. and on and on. the person feels extremely guilty while falling asleep and vows not to do it ever again. they wake up in the morning "full" and not wanting to eat after last nights binge. they usualy dont eat until around 2 or so in the afternoon and eat lightly throughout the day...where at night the process begins again. the guilt, the binging. its just not cool. ok, so that might not be the exact deffinition of it but that's what i remember reading and it's what happend to me the past few years (i've only been on welbutrin for a couple of months).

i hate it. i've gotten a lil better at it. i dont eat hardly as much at night anymore. but i still do eat at night and it's bothering me to insanity. i've tried not eating after 8. that didnt work. so i pushed it off till not eating after 10. that didnt work either. i dont have a therapist right now (my mom's been massively slow about finding me a new one and i cant do it on my own because of insurance stuff and i just dont want to) so i'm just asking if anyone has any suggestions because I REALLY WANT TO STOP EATING AT NIGHT COMPLETELY AND TOTALY.

I wouldn't exactly call it night eating. it's more like binge eating after trying to starve yourself all day. I dealt with something very similar and then starting going to a dietician who stated that I was not eating enough food and putting off eating till it was "convinient" for me. At that point your body is so starved that you automatically craves sugar and fats. I've seen a big change in myself and a HUGE decrease in night bingeing by changing my eating habits.

i'm just telling you from my own experience. Does your psychologist specialize in eating disorders?

k, firstly i have to apologize i looked over what i responded to you the past couple of times and i sounded rude and closed minded. sorry about that. and haha about that, i was talking about my past psychologist. i stopped seeing her a month or two ago because i cant really talk to her about stuff. i would get shy and embaressed.

my mom said she'd find me a new one by wednesday (which was yesterday). but she hasnt. and i brought it up with her and she said she never promised she said she'd TRY to do it by then. i dont think she ever will honestly. she wants to find me someone to deal with my anxiety really. she just...i dont know. like right when something's happend, like when i'm having an anxiety "attack" she's all like "oh ill help you! ill find you someone as soon as possible! we'll get you help. even if it costs alot of money its worth it!" and then like a day later shes all like whatever about it. like she has all the time in the world. i dont know... she's always "busy". and im too demanding i guess. so is everything about her life. i kinda lost hope in the getting a new psychologist anytime soon thing. she's been promising to find me one for around a month and a half now.

and if you're wondering why i cant just find one myself its because she wants to ask around to find someone that's both good and is covered by our insurance. and i dont have anyone to ask about that to.

*sigh*
